You and your student have chosen Cal Poly for the endless potential it offers. The diversity of ideas and wealth of Learn by Doing opportunities in every area of campus life brings out the best in our students. We are so glad you and your student are here, and we want to welcome you to the Cal Poly Family.
Learn by Doing was born at Cal Poly and will thrive here, always. This exceptional education approach requires exceptional support.
This is why Cal Poly has such a strong culture of parent giving. Our parent donors lead by example, understanding that the partnership between private and public support is critical to the high level of excellence and innovation that sets the Cal Poly student experience apart.
